I received an email notification at 3am that my Helio Ocean order was put through. I have to wait two days (probably Monday arrival), but I saved close to $200 by taking the presales route. I’ve been a huge fan of Danger and their Sidekicks for years, but the Ocean is enticing. It’s the first phone that I’ve seen that could compete with the Sidekick 3. Apparently a lot of others are saying the same thing. Danger, is it time to step up the game and go back to releasing ground-breaking devices?

The other night I was talking with a friend about how great it would be to be able to access my Google Calendar from my Sidekick in order to add and view events. We lamented about the lack of a solution even though it seems like it should be possible. Then I heard about IMified this morning. IMified describes their service as such:
Imified is an instant messenger buddy that works across all major IM networks and offers access to a growing number of web applications, as well as productivity tools like notes, reminders, and todo’s. Imified helps you get things done faster.
In short, you can send an IM to their bot and Edit or View information on your different web-based applications such as Google Calendar, WordPress, Blogger, Backpack, etc. It just launched, so it’s totally beta at this point and bugs are expected as they work out the real-world usage. But so far it looks very promising! It’s also perfect for the Sidekick user as Instant Messaging is built into the device and always available. There are even shortcuts to save you the hassle of multiple IMs. Here are some more details on IMified:
Supported IM Clients:
- 30 Boxes
- Google Calendar
- Remember the Milk
- IMified Notes (for when you go over 50 notes on the Sidekick)
- IMified Reminders
- IMified Todos
We recommend checking it out now if you’re willing to put up with the bugs, or else just give them a few weeks and check them out when they’ve ironed out the initial issues.
